13 Problems Only Extremely Sarcastic People Will Understand
Bustle

Sarcasm is an art that runs in my family, so I've had the opportunity to perfect it over the years. Sometimes, though, it can be slighty probematic--particularly when no one knows whether or not you're being serious. Nevertheless, I think it's probably the cleverest form of humor, even if the mere mortals who are not fluent in sarcasm tend to be very confused to what us sarcastic people are talking about. If this seems to sound like you, read on to discover 13 problems that you'll only understand if you're too sarcastic for your own good:

1. You're the only one who laughs at your own jokes.

Conversations with my friends are often paused because I'll spend a good five minutes laughing at my own joke while everyone just kind of judges me.

2. People never know whether you like them or hate them.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F11%2F04%2F636138725443047288-190302021_lana%2520del%2520rey.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=537&h=f0b4ab9c95fa0252ccac482836954196b3c0aaaef741438d28ab41a5a197cc74&size=980x&c=2436341865 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F11%252F04%252F636138725443047288-190302021_lana%252520del%252520rey.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D537%26h%3Df0b4ab9c95fa0252ccac482836954196b3c0aaaef741438d28ab41a5a197cc74%26size%3D980x%26c%3D2436341865%22%7D" expand=1]

Someone I considered one of my friends thought I hated them for a whole year because they didn't get sarcasm. (On the other hand, this is super convenient because you can be mean to people you actualy don't like and they'll just think you're being sarcastic :D)

3. Your sense of humor is really self-disparaging.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F11%2F04%2F636138730158052038-2096960949_trash.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=848&h=0b670e7808edab1358bce8b07e9f9889ee9ebb05b12632faee1aec07ba5567cf&size=980x&c=1157879949 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F11%252F04%252F636138730158052038-2096960949_trash.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D848%26h%3D0b670e7808edab1358bce8b07e9f9889ee9ebb05b12632faee1aec07ba5567cf%26size%3D980x%26c%3D1157879949%22%7D" expand=1]

I'm at the point where I've called myself trash so many times that I'm not 100% sure I wasn't a trash can in a past life.

4. You tend not to like most people.

If they don't understand sarcasm, are they really worth talking to?

5. But once you find someone who gets your sarcasm, you feel #blessed.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F11%2F04%2F636138735485121928231429342_besties.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=337&h=a53bac89d82da6c923973edc910a70c2bf5011ac0530bb20b54f6389e7d3449d&size=980x&c=1757955397 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F11%252F04%252F636138735485121928231429342_besties.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D337%26h%3Da53bac89d82da6c923973edc910a70c2bf5011ac0530bb20b54f6389e7d3449d%26size%3D980x%26c%3D1757955397%22%7D" expand=1]

Bffles for life.

6. On that note, you probably use #blessed in a sarcastic way way too often:

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F11%2F04%2F6361387371462623032127793901_carrie%2520underwood.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=696&h=d4e5dce997ac26dd700615ae2e5558f5b87dc0ac6320f5863b3db00d1c705f41&size=980x&c=1744813316 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F11%252F04%252F6361387371462623032127793901_carrie%252520underwood.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D696%26h%3Dd4e5dce997ac26dd700615ae2e5558f5b87dc0ac6320f5863b3db00d1c705f41%26size%3D980x%26c%3D1744813316%22%7D" expand=1]

Ramen for dinner? #Blessed

Saw two dogs today? Actually #blessed

7. You don't know how to flirt.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F11%2F04%2F636138915839347317-491878425_pll.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=844&h=b02ed96f00087f2e3c78ae746f596b5da57d5cf030cb3085d2339e094744ea86&size=980x&c=1740437692 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F11%252F04%252F636138915839347317-491878425_pll.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D844%26h%3Db02ed96f00087f2e3c78ae746f596b5da57d5cf030cb3085d2339e094744ea86%26size%3D980x%26c%3D1740437692%22%7D" expand=1]

Your version of flirting is kind of just insulting someone, which you see as 'lighthearted' teasing, but it isn't really the most romantic way to woo a potential bae.

8. People never know when you're actually being serious.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F11%2F04%2F63613891739971887921133216_sarcasm.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=302&h=4fb2b6ae2aea2d705b74ddf3b5712b2e254192d63a2708e973a44e98f4f18a3b&size=980x&c=2218165165 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F11%252F04%252F63613891739971887921133216_sarcasm.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D302%26h%3D4fb2b6ae2aea2d705b74ddf3b5712b2e254192d63a2708e973a44e98f4f18a3b%26size%3D980x%26c%3D2218165165%22%7D" expand=1]

Even if you're upset, it's hard for people to tell if you're actually upset or just being sarcastic.

9. You've been in awkward situations where your sarcasm didn't translate over text messages.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F11%2F04%2F636138920024833646-317833879_awkward.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=126&h=dd54c573831f8f32f89f2f6564618a6749353f709a14b4d0e29dac0ca9ab7655&size=980x&c=2351012479 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F11%252F04%252F636138920024833646-317833879_awkward.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D126%26h%3Ddd54c573831f8f32f89f2f6564618a6749353f709a14b4d0e29dac0ca9ab7655%26size%3D980x%26c%3D2351012479%22%7D" expand=1]

Texting is not always your friend.

10. You're not always good at coping with emotional situations.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F11%2F04%2F6361389227235468931501951605_mindy%2520kaling.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=759&h=b306f8b7aa2f1ba6be22c2437bd033a798e82b280501bc78af8a56ab6e6c7a70&size=980x&c=1008554174 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F11%252F04%252F6361389227235468931501951605_mindy%252520kaling.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D759%26h%3Db306f8b7aa2f1ba6be22c2437bd033a798e82b280501bc78af8a56ab6e6c7a70%26size%3D980x%26c%3D1008554174%22%7D" expand=1]

If you can't use sarcasm, situations sometimes get uncomfortable

11. You've accidentally insulted people who take sarcasm way too seriously.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F11%2F04%2F636138924586591031565449993_sadness.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=107&h=1c8e5e07cd7bc5d9f8e0abc0db91e13a1c5d1ede1936095001f9d2a1c9a7cee3&size=980x&c=2931732242 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F11%252F04%252F636138924586591031565449993_sadness.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D107%26h%3D1c8e5e07cd7bc5d9f8e0abc0db91e13a1c5d1ede1936095001f9d2a1c9a7cee3%26size%3D980x%26c%3D2931732242%22%7D" expand=1]

And then you have to apologize and try to avoid being sarcastic for a couple days so they know you're trying.

12. You use sarcasm to avoid talking about your emotions.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F11%2F04%2F636138925934135475-898237333_the%2520office%2520gif.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=694&h=c0d47aa8354135d66fc0194880d02cec20533e937e0a9761b56a292826026d86&size=980x&c=1028211204 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F11%252F04%252F636138925934135475-898237333_the%252520office%252520gif.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D694%26h%3Dc0d47aa8354135d66fc0194880d02cec20533e937e0a9761b56a292826026d86%26size%3D980x%26c%3D1028211204%22%7D" expand=1]

But it's fine! Everything's fine...

13. At the end of the day, you still add some humor to other people's lives.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F11%2F04%2F636138931363656975874474328_chandler.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=47&h=3bbb6d7db2c3876b97fce7e5f57991f49636693ea67b673c3a0f3849a4201752&size=980x&c=612831501 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F11%252F04%252F636138931363656975874474328_chandler.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D47%26h%3D3bbb6d7db2c3876b97fce7e5f57991f49636693ea67b673c3a0f3849a4201752%26size%3D980x%26c%3D612831501%22%7D" expand=1]

Those who consider sarcasm to be the "lowest form of wit" are obviously just not very sarcastic.

My Ethnicity

Hispanic is not a race... it’s an ethnicity. The term Hispanic describes a group of people whose common thread is language and/or culture. I’m a Hispanic woman born in Argentina to Korean parents. I self-identify as Hispanic/Latina and my personal experiences can’t be summarized by the color of my skin or the languages on my tongue. That is because every single person in the universe has a unique experience. Whether someone labels me as Korean or Argentine or American, that will never change my experiences as a Spanish speaker, immigrant, child of divorced parents, Californian, college graduate (Go Bears!), omnivore, writer, or any other label I choose for myself.

Your Work Week As Told By Michael Scott And Stanley Hudson

"The Office" is basically the best American TV show created in the past 15 years (you can fight me on this). And through all its hilarity and cringe-worthy "that would never happen in real life" moments, the show really does have a lot of relatable themes, as can be seen by the little compilation I put together of Michael Scott and Stanley Hudson.
